Recognize YOUR Volunteers and Schoolhouse Supporters!
Submitted by Joan Prouty
Most Country Schools and Museums rely heavily on the donated time and efforts of VOLUNTEERS, often unsung heroes! The Country School Association of America offers several opportunities for those volunteers to be recognized for their outstanding support to your organization and we need your help identifying them.
There are 3 Honor Award Categories:
The first is our SERVICE AWARD – given to an individual who regularly volunteers at a country school. This person is someone who goes above and beyond; they are there to help whenever needed.
The 2nd category is the CRAFTSPERSON AWARD - for a volunteer who uses their craftsmanship skills in the schoolhouse or for artifact preservation or conservation. They have helped to restore, replicate, or refurbish the building or item as near to original as possible using original materials and/or techniques.
Our 3rd honor award is for the YOUNG VOLUNTEER PRESERVATIONIST - unlike the prior 2 categories this one has an age restriction. To inspire youth to become involved in history this award is given to someone aged 14-22 who shows a deep interest and participation in early school history by volunteering at a schoolhouse or museum site. The youth must have a minimum of 2 years of service in the school or museum.
Each of these Honor recognitions has a monetary award along with other benefits.
The complete guidelines and applications for the Honor Awards can be found on the CSAA website.
